We prioritise the development of the head and the heart to enable all to learn, flourish and achieve. Our teaching and learning is underpinned by our core ethos ‘inspiring all to learn, flourish and achieve’.
The Priory School has developed a compelling, sequenced and relevant curriculum which progresses from EYFS to Year 6. The specific content of what we want children to learn is important, so we have developed a knowledge-rich curriculum, mapping out content within and across year groups.
Our inclusive curriculum is designed to meet the needs of all learners through engaging, first hand experiences delivered by teachers who know their content and teach with passion and precision. We want our school community to develop a deep and life-long love of learning. We aspire to share the very best of what has been thought and said, across continents and cultures.
We have developed a curriculum, based on the National Curriculum, which reflects our unique context and priorities.
Further information about our curriculum is available by contacting the school.
